History comes to life with the new outdoor "18-Pounder Losoya House Exhibit" in Alamo Plaza. This immersive exhibit provides an up-close encounter with a full-size replica of the cannon the Alamo Defenders fired in 1836 to tell Santa Anna that they would remain defiant and never surrender.

The exhibit will also teach visitors about the home of Alamo Defender José Toribio Losoya, who was born at the Alamo in 1808 and died defending it in 1836. With the exhibit in the southwest corner of the original Alamo compound - the very location of the Losoya house in 1836 - visitors will be able to better understand Alamo history exactly where it happened.

The exhibit is free to the public, and will be open during normal Alamo operating hours from 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. An elevator lift will be available for accessibility.
